  • Excluding selected categories

    Hello,

    it is possible to realize a category excluding filter?

    Searching in all categories but exclude some selected categories (see screenshot in attachment).

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Best regards,

    John

    This is not something that is configurable within Zoom. We have not tested it but if you are experienced with JavaScript, you may be able to wrangle up a solution.
    • You would need to enable "Allow searching in multiple categories" in Zoom under "Configure->Categories"
    • You will need to disable generating the default search form and specify your own. Similarly to the picture you have attached.
    • You would need to capture and handle the submit event for your form.
    • In your event handler, you will create the actual query that gets submitted. e.g. You have 4 Categories, you want to search All EXCEPT Category 2 so the search query would be something like "...search.php?zoom_query=dogs&zoom_cat[]=0&zoom_cat[]=2&zoom_cat[]=3"
    Again we have not tested it, but it might work.
